Up for sale is my like new in box RWS 350 mag. This airgun is only 2 weeks old! I am selling to fund a RWS 52. This airgun is awesome. I have installed a Vortek ProGuide2 kit along with a new Apex piston seal. The rifle was reassembled with Maccarri lubes and is very smooth. I have all the paperwork and original parts along with the retail box. The wood and metal are 100% with no scratches or marks. I have chronographed many popular pellets and the results are listed with the averages below. .22 cal:

RWS Superdomes- 846
Kodiaks-                 702
JSB Exact RS-        810
Silver Bear-            929
RWS Superpoint-   836
Crow Mag-             777  (also the highest ft/lb at 24.39)
JSB Predator-        793
JSB Exact Jumbo- 797
JSB Jumbo Exp-    787
CPHP-                    864
Silver Arrow-         770

$400 shipped insured to CONUS. Payment by Paypal +3% or Postal MO. My feedback can be checked on Ebay under daddyoemt.

*******
EDIT:    The Vortek kit has been removed and the 350 returned to stock with lube tune. Shoots 850 fps with CPHP. The Vortek was put into a 350 Feuerkraft that I'm keeping. I am leaving the above info for those who are interested in the data for the Proguide2 kit.  Price is $320 shipped to CONUS.

Got any pics?

Why are you selling it if it's such an awesome gun?  What is the accuracy of the gun? and consistency from shot to shot on the chrony?

Don't take this the wrong way but some of the velocity #'s don't make sense to me.. I have owned 2 350 .22's (still have 1).  
The JSB Express 14.3gr should be a lot faster than the JSB Jumbo and Predator, but it is slower than the heavier pellets?  Also JSB Jumbo (15.8gr) are always 15-20fps faster than the 16.5gr Predators.   Kodiaks @ 702fps(!?)  I have never seen a 350 shoot them higher than 675-680fps..  There was 1 power-tuned 350 I remember on the boards that got 690fps, or I could be thinking of Phil's 1st 350 .22 (he is on here).  Both my 350 .22's shot them at 665-670fps.  Are you giving out the highest vel#, and not the average?  RWS #'s are right on the money.

Thank you for your interest in my post. The pics are at the address listed in my original post. As for selling the 350, I have a dealer account with Pyramyd Air and have had the luxury of shooting and buying many different airguns. I keep the ones that I truly enjoy and sell the others. The velocity numbers listed are correct with regard to grainage. Many of the break barrel powerplants will shoot lighter pellets slower due to the lack of pressure that can build behind the pellet before it starts its journey down the barrel.  I have owned 2 different RWS 350's and both of them present the same way. The Predators are listed at 16 gr. and usually are very close the the JSB Exact Jumbo at 15.9. The 350 always shoots the JSB RS poorly with regard to velocity in a lighter pellet. With accuracy, I have only shot the 350 with irons and only a limited amount of shots at that, so I have not put much effort in zeroing. I have shot with this rifle a 2" group at 40 yards with ease, and I would expect with any effort it would shoot much tighter. I am selling because I do not like the open sights on the 350 mag, and I don't need another scoped gun. This would be a good opportunity for someone to get a like new gun with extreme power for less than new price. Hopefully, some of your questions were answered with satisfaction,and if not, feel free to ask for clearification. Thanks again for the post, and take care.

Hello All,
 
Due to the post by only1harry above and my quest to be completely honest about my airguns, I have run a 10 shot string over the chrony this morning with the 350 and the results are below:

.22 Beeman Kodiaks- gun fresh from its case and straight to the chrony

1- 704.0
2- 705.3
3- 703.2
4- 710.8
5- 704.0
6- 706.8
7- 702.7
8- 704.1
9- 705.4
10- 701.6

H- 710.8
L- 701.4
Av- 704.8
ES- 9.39
SD- 2.44

The velocities listed on my original post are correct, and I should probably keep this gun since it seems to be more powerful than most 350's, but it is still for sale.

Good point! Sale is postponed, and I will post again if I decide to sale. Thanks again all for looking, and maybe the chrono info helped someone.

The 350 is back up for sale. I just don't use it, and it's too nice to just sit around.

.....until the recoil breaks me down again.    i just lubed the upper part of the vortek spring w/ macarri and lubed the lower w/ the vortek lube (where it slides into the sleeve) and it seems to alright so far.....i just did that last night, though......i had the vortek kit fully lubed w/ macarri moly and smooth as a baby's (a....) face, but it only shot a consistent 776 w/ .22 cphp's.   shooting 825-830 now.     these are great guns.
